Cool Effects

On Monday Jessica was nice enough to watch the kids while I went and inhaled the carcinogens of my burning flesh. She had the kids color pictures from this awesome coloring book. On that site there is a free coloring page of Saint Joseph. I had the girls color it then used their "tip" and brushed the back with vegetable oil which made an awesome stained glass effect. This was printed on just regular paper and could be used for any type of drawing--the Fenestræ Fidei images just work perfectly since they are intended to be stained glass

Back, see how the colors go through the paper
*note-you do NOT need to use a lot of oil, just enough to wet the paper

3 people are laughing with me:

Wow! That is amazing! We are going to have to try that! I am out of veggie oil though... wonder if olive oil will work the same or if will yellow it? Hmmm...
